1880: Tennessee
Posted by: Ken Hinds (ID *****4287) Date: August 06, 2006 at 15:55:29
In Reply to: Annotated Rigsby Census by Ken Hinds of 1034

Please read the introductory message (number 742) for an
explanation of this file.

Please do not respond to this message. I will be happy to
answer questions, but please start a new message to the
board.

Note: In this census, people were asked to state where
their parents were born. I have shown this as, for example,
KY/NC/TN. In this example, the person was born in Kentucky,
their father in North Carolina, and their mother in
Tennessee. For children in this listing, I have shown only
their birth place if both parents were in the household.

Note: Also in this census, the relationship between each
person and the head-of-household is shown. I have used the
following abbreviations:

husb=husband
dau=daughter
fath=father
moth=mother
gfath=grandfather
gmoth=grandmother
nep=nephew
nie=niece
gson=grandson
gdau=granddaughter
sson=stepson
sdau=stepdaughter
bro=brother
sis=sister
cou=cousin
f-l=father-in-law
m-l=mother-in-law
s-l=son-in-law
d-l=daughter-in-law
b-l=brother-in-law
sis-l=sister-in-law
oth=other

Note: "B" at the end of a line indicates Black or Colored;
"M" at the end of a line indicates Mulatto.
